Arts Everyday Living: Monet and Homer—Sunset at Sea and on the Seine

Winslow Homer, Gloucester Sunset, 1880, watercolor on paper, Private Collection

Impressionist Claude Monet (1840-1926) and American artist Winslow Homer (1836-1910) were contemporaries, both moved by the environment, immortalizing the dramatic power of a summer sunset whether on New England’s Atlantic coastline or France’s Seine River.
